Fragrant: The Secret Life of Scent

The “Alice Waters of American natural perfume” celebrates our most potent sense, through five rock stars of the Fragrant world.

Mandy Aftel is a world-renowned artisan perfumer and a wizard with aromatic essences. Vanity Fair has called her the “Angel of Alchemy,” Vogue has praised her as “one of the fragrance industry’s most creative thinkers, not to mention one of its most prolific talents,” and Forbes has named her one of the top bespoke perfumers in the world.

Aftel scours the world for the most exquisite ingredients and has developed scents for celebrities like David Lynch and Leonard Cohen. Her edible essences have been used at Michelin-starred restaurants like Jean-Georges and Blue Hill, and her unique expertise brings extraordinary projects her way, like recreating the perfume with which an Egyptian mummy was entombed. The “Mother of Natural Perfumery,” she pioneered and passionately advocates for working with natural materials, in a world dominated by mass-produced, synthetic aroma.

Telling the story of scent through five stars of the Fragrant world—cinnamon, mint, frankincense, ambergris, and jasmine—Aftel blends history, culture, science, poetry and philosophy with essentials of scent literacy. Laced with astonishing anecdotes and electrifying details (the Chinese cat clock!) and supplemented with recipes for easy-to-make fragrances and edible and drinkable concoctions, Fragrant is pure delight to read on every page. The epigraph reads “Aesthetics cures us of anesthesia. It awakens us.” (philosopher Michel Serres); we invite you to have your own senses awakened by Aftel’s fascinating, impassioned, and evocative work.

The Map and the Territory: Risk, Human Nature, and the Future of Forecasting by Alan Greenspan

Like all of us, though few so visibly, Alan Greenspan was forced by the financial crisis of 2008 to question some fundamental assumptions about risk management and economic forecasting. No one with any meaningful role in economic decision making in the world saw beforehand the storm for what it was. How had our models so utterly failed us?

To answer this question, Alan Greenspan embarked on a rigorous and far-reaching multiyear examination of how Homo economicus predicts the economic future, and how it can predict it better.

Oakland-Translators Zack Rogow and Renée Morel discuss Colette's "Shipwrecked on a Traffic Island"
Diesel, a bookstore - Oakland, Sunday, January 11, 2015 at 3pm
Diesel, A Bookstore in Oakland welcomes translators Zack Rogow and Renée Morel to the store to discuss and sign their newly translated collection of previously unpublished works by Colette, Shipwrecked on a Traffic Island, on Sunday, January 11th at 3pm. Renowned actor Lorri Holt will read from the book. She has appeared on many stages, including at A.C.T. and Berkeley Rep.

The French writer Colette (1873-1954) is best known in the United States for such classic novels as Gigi and Cheri, which were made into popular movies, but she was a prolific author. This meticulously translated collection offers some of her best fiction, personal essays, articles, and talks, all appearing in English for the first time. They cover an enormous array of topics from French wines and perfumes to her friendships with Marcel Proust and Maurice Chevalier to uncanny insight into the curious habits of cats and dogs. Selections from an advice column that Colette wrote for the French women's magazine Marie Claire are also included, and her savvy suggestions for the lovelorn stand the test of time. Moving articles written during the two world wars, along with her memories of being an actor and playwright, reveal facets of her writing that are less often celebrated. The first new work by Colette to appear in English in half a century, it will delight devoted fans and new readers alike.

Zack Rogow is the author, editor, or translator of twenty books or plays. His seventh book of poems, My Mother and the Ceiling Dancers, was published by Kattywompus Press. He is the editor of an anthology of poetry of the U.S.A., The Face of Poetry, from University of California Press. Currently he teaches in the low-residency MFA in writing program at the University of Alaska Anchorage and serves as poetry editor of Catamaran Literary Reader.

Renée Morel is a translator and an instructor in French and linguistics at City College of San Francisco. She lectures throughout the Bay Area on French culture, art, and civilization, from the Gauls to de Gaulle.

Joshua Gressel's Embracing Envy
Green Apple Books, Sunday, January 11, 2015 at 7pm
Please join Green Apple in welcoming local author, Joshua Gressel, as we celebrate the release of his first book, Embracing Envy, on January 11, 2015 at 7pm in the Granny Smith Room. Envy is a universal emotion, yet people are very reluctant to confess their envy of another. In Embracing Envy, Josh Gressel suggests it is our shame at admitting we feel inferior to another person that keeps envy so hidden. Through interviews with everyday people, reviews of mainstream psychological research, and lessons from wisdom literature, this book delves into how envy can be seen as meaningful and useful in our daily lives.
